Welcome to Ruby Victoria Letterpress & printmaking

Here you will find photos of all my original hand carved linocut prints and letterpress printing.
A commercial printer by trade a printmaker by choice.
I specialize in original handcarved lino block prints with a bit of letterpress thrown in for good measure.
All printed on antique printing machines with that unmistakable bite into the paper that you can only get with letterpress printing

The work that I do is not created on a computer everything is hand drawn then hand carved out of lino then printed one impression at a time on my tabletop letterpress machine

I do not use polymer which limits me somewhat in regards to type but I love to use traditional methods in my printing that involve handset type and hand carved designs and I think this is what make my work totally Original and Unique to what other people are doing right now and it also meaning everything I make is an original work of art
I love what I do and love to share it with others that are interested

Celebrating Autumn

I love Autumn!
it is my favorite season of the year here in Tasmania unlike many other states in Australia we have the good fortune of still getting four seasons a year, most people that live in Tassie attest that we get 4 seasons in one day, which isn't too far from the truth !
Any way to celebrate the coming of my favorite time of the year I have decided to design some autumn inspired designs to print I haven't decided on colours maybe you could give me some suggestion that would be great? :)

I will hopefully I will have these ready for the upcoming Apron Design Market to be held in Launceston on the 2nd and 3rd of April at the Seaport .
